Online English education platform 51Talk recently held its mid-year press conference as it continues to celebrate its 10th year anniversary.
Brand updates were announced at the press event, with actress Maine Mendoza being introduced as 51Talk’s newest brand ambassador.
The award-winning comedienne shared that she finds it an honor, as well as a very rewarding experience to represent 51Talk.
“I said yes to 51Talk because I felt that the values and ideals that 51Talk stand for appealed to me. I felt that, on a deeper level, nakakarelate ako because they value genuine connections with people, and they recognize and reward hard work,” Mendoza relayed.
“I also am very honored to be an instrument to promote 51Talk’s livelihood opportunity to Filipinos, especially now when the country is reeling from the impact of the pandemic,” Maine added.
She believes that being an online English teacher at 51Talk is an ideal opportunity especially for those who juggle many roles in life and desire a flexible schedule.
“I hope that my being 51Talk’s ambassador will help reach out to more Filipinos to learn about this opportunity.”
Maine was formally introduced by 51Talk Country Head Jennifer Que, who shared why she is the perfect candidate to represent 51Talk’s 30,000 online English teachers.
51Talk had previously teased the identity of its brand ambassador in social media where it trended in Twitter with the hashtag #MaineMendozaFor51Talk.
“When she’s not on screen, Maine juggles other roles as an entrepreneur, advocate, and writer. She understands what it’s like to constantly explore endeavors that don’t just pique one’s interest, but also give room for self-improvement. Her lively personality, coupled with her entrepreneurial mindset and go-getter attitude, makes her an ideal embodiment of our 51Talk teachers,” Que explained.
Launched in the Philippines in 2011, 51Talk is a leading online English teaching platform that connects thousands of Filipino teachers to foreign students through live and interactive lessons.
Due to their naturally cheerful temperament and proficiency in speaking English, Filipinos are considered ideal English language teachers for young foreign learners.
